About ENCOUNTERS - Cross Cultural Tel-Aviv Tours
Encounters is a boutique business tailored to follow your interests, needs, curiosity and dreams. It transforms cultural differences into strengths. I founded Encounters for sharing the way I live, work and travel. I believe that the Cross-Cultural perspective underlines the power of curiosity and creates a place for all humans just the way they are. It is about everyone and everyplace. This perspective enhances the satisfaction and delights of life.

We had a great time travel experience with Ilyll guiding us very nicely and professionally in Tel Aviv and taking us about 100 years back, at the times when the new city was established. Ilyll helped us visualizing in our minds how the mix of cultural factors affected the development of the city, how the different architectural styles expressed the emotional and functional needs of the people living in the city in the initial decades of the past century. Thanks to Ilyll, it was an amazing way to see Tel Aviv with different eyes!

Ilyll has great track record working with London Business School groups visiting Israel. She reached out to ensure she had a holistic view of the group attending the Graffiti Tour and this really facilitated her engagement alongside her colleagues. The group was split into smaller groups and shown around the area. All questions were answered and Ilyll asked challenging questions and made thought provoking comments. We also visited a small arts shop which had some very interesting merchandise and a cool Art App. The Graffiti Tour was definitely in my top 3 activities in Israel.

We had a wonderful couple of hours with Ilyll of Encounters that gave us a window into understanding cultural differences in Israel, and Jaffa in particular. We learnt about Jaffa's rich history and all of its complexities over the centuries. Ilyll had a wonderful way of engaging adults and teens and was a wealth of information for newbies and veterans alike. We loved our tour.

Ilyll from Encounters Cross Cultural Tours gave us a personal and informative intro to the city of Tel Aviv and the region in general. It was a perfect first day complete with the worlds’ best hummus, halva, cookies, arepas, and spiced Turkish coffee. Llyll is an expert on micro cultures in Israel and speaks flawless English after spending several years in Austin as a child. Thank you for a delicious welcome to Tel Aviv!

A Ellye is a wonderful guide. We took a cross cultural tour of Jaffa- She is a soft spoken power house!!! An off the beaten track tour that you get to know the community of Jaffa and talk to the locals. I can’t wait to hire her again when I am back here.... She was fantastic
